Meet The Manufacturer: #1995: Nissin Cup Noodle Big Cheese Mexican Chili

This looks absolutely awesome. Chili cheese Cup Noodle? Not only that, it’s big – and it has the Mexican wrestler guy on it! I wonder how it would go with corn chips… Anyways, let’s crack it open and have a look!

Some of the loose seasoning from the cup. Notice the little pieces of cheese towards the bottom.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are thin and flat – maybe a hair wider than your average Cup Noodle? They hydrated just right either way. Now, the broth is something fascinating. It has a little bit of thickness to it and a definite chili cheese flavor – it literally tastes like a can of no bean chili with some cheese in it. They got it spot on; heavy on the cumin and chili powder – even  pieces of ground beef! It’s strange at the same time as satisfying; I mean they’re chili cheese: noodles. Plus, I found a few pieces of cabbage in there which worked quite well. This is definitely unique and different! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105232149.
